Amanda Murphy Ceramics

Pottery from Ireland

Ceramicist Amanda Murphy makes decorative hand-built stoneware ceramics including vases, platters and bowls. Each piece is hand-built, inspired by movement within the landscape.

Using oxides and coloured glass to punctuate the pieces, the creations offer what the potter calls a bird's eye view of the landscape.  The way the glaze and glass melt during firing is different each time, making each piece unique.

Inspired in the main by the landscape and the movement offered by views from above, the rippled bowls and jagged edge platters evoke the mountains and other undulations in the land.

I met Amanda at her home and workshop in February 2018 having been given one of her pieces as a present a few years prior to that.  She was the first crafts person to come on board with Inis Living and I think was the catalyst to get things moving.  For that I am very grateful.  Thank you Amanda.
